Have never bought a Delica it is smaller than a native which is smaller than a Para3 right? Starting to decide against it. A Native is about as small as I can tolerate anyone with both that can tell me why an even smaller knife is worthwhile?
Also, note that the delica doesn’t have a finger choil. So more cutting edge and maybe less handle. It’s a bit different from para 3 or native.
If you are just looking at the handle (excluding the Native's choil), then the Delica has a clearly longer grip area. Below are some photos to illustrate. With the Delica, your hand shape needs to work with the (slight) scallops. (My hands take size Large gloves, typically.)
Fwiw, I prefer the Delica due to the longer length, excluding the choil. But I won't be picking up this variant. I just don't carry Delicas enough to justify the cost.
